EQCA launches ‘Good Neighbor Equality Award’ to honor grassroots heroesAround the City, Top Highlights Thursday, June 21st, 2012
Equality California (EQCA) in partnership with State Farm Insurance is set to honor grassroots activists in local communities who have made a difference in the lives of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) Californians. It is the first time that an honoree will be selected not by EQCA, but from nominations by grassroots community members. Honorees will be presented with a “Good Neighbor Equality Award” on stage at the 2012 Equality Awards in San Francisco, San Diego, Palm Springs and Los Angeles.
“While elected officials and movement leaders play a critical role in our efforts to achieve equality, we also know that there are countless individuals across our state making significant contributions to our movement who deserve our thanks, appreciation and recognition,” said Equality California Board President Clarissa Filgioun. “We are proud to engage the LGBT community and our allies in applauding these unsung heroes and thank State Farm Insurance for partnering with us in the important celebration of this work.”
